Dalai Lama and China's Ire

How very pathetic.
BEIJING, Oct. 16 — Chinese officials warned the United States on Tuesday not to honor the Dalai Lama, saying a planned award ceremony in Washington for the Tibetan spiritual leader would have “an extremely serious impact” on relations between the countries.

The Dalai Lama arrived at his hotel in Washington on Tuesday before a meeting with President Bush.

Tibet’s Communist Party boss, Zhang Qingli, at the Communist Party’s 17th National Congress in Beijing today.

Speaking at a Foreign Ministry briefing and on the sidelines of the Communist Party’s 17th National Congress, the officials condemned the Dalai Lama as a resolute separatist and said foreign leaders must stop encouraging his “splittist” mission.

“Such a person who basely splits his motherland and doesn’t even love his motherland has been welcomed by some countries and has even been receiving this or that award,” Tibet’s Communist Party boss, Zhang Qingli, told reporters during the congress.

“We are furious,” Mr. Zhang said. “If the Dalai Lama can receive such an award, there must be no justice or good people in the world.”
Maybe Mr. Zhang should speak with the Falun Gong or perhaps the families of protesters from Tienaman square. Justice my ass. He must have a very limited access to history since he doesn't seem to understand that the Dalai Lama fled Tibet when China began its repressive regime. Should we ask about the vast numbers of Tibetan monks and nuns that were murdered by the Chinese government? Or is that justice the way the party prefers it?

Fucking hypocrites.
